Ginnie Mae executive vice president George Anderson said he wants to work in the private or public sector to help African countries develop secondary mortgage markets after he leaves the agency in June or July."There is growing interest in the Ginnie Mae model," Mr. Anderson said in an interview. He believes South Africa and neighboring Botswana have the infrastructure in place to create a secondary market. Mr. Anderson has worked at Department of Housing and Urban Development since he graduated from business school 33 years ago and he has served as EVP at Ginnie Mae for the past eight years. He said Ginnie Mae has a talented young staff that is ready to run the agency and Ginnie Mae is finally moving its offices out of the HUD building this summer. The new office will be two blocks away from HUD but it will have a corporate look. "I am leaving at a good time," he said.
